or the first time ever, scientists have created an invisibility cloak made from silk, and coated in gold. The new metamaterial, as invisibility cloaks and their kin are technically called, only works on relatively long terahertz waves (a region of t
Gordon Murray Design's T.25 will not be just a small ‘big car’ but will have a radically innovative architecture and the flexible layout will support a variety of uses. Its compact size will allow ‘2’ T.25’s to travel in one UK motorway lane. Tr
The elite find us obsolete and risky in view of our increasing awareness of their deceitful oppression. They aim to replace us with "enhanced" humans!
So-called start-stop systems that turn off a car when it is idling and reignite the engine when the driver releases the brake will be coming to the United States and Canada in the next five years, The Detroit News reported.
The recent tests add to subsonic wind tunnel testing data obtained by XCOR late last year at the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton. As part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), XCOR, NASA and the Air Force will all benef
Part I: This is Part I in a four-part series about the forced implantation of James Walbert, a Wichita Kansas resident and inventor.
The breakthrough technology will provide engineers with much more freedom and creativity by enabling far greater functionality to be incorporated into medical devices such as stents, braces and hearing aids than is currently possible.
Now, researchers at the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical Laboratory, with colleagues, have unexpectedly found that the transition temperature can be induced under two different intense pressures in a three-layered bismuth oxide crystal referred to
Pills that eliminate jet lag and bring manic depression under control could be developed, after scientists found a drug which alters the body clock.
Scientists have hailed a 'penicillin moment' in cancer treatment following trials of a drug that uses genetic data to target the formation of specific tumours.
For many scientists who know about such things, the question isn’t whether the first person to live forever has been born, but how old they are. The basis for this belief is that, if a person can survive the next 20 or 30 years, then breakthroughs in
When long DNA chains that had been added to the water went through the opening one-by-one, they blocked the flow of ions, resulting in a change in the electrical signal. The exact nature of those changes allowed the researchers to determine the size
The aluminum alloys have small building blocks, called “grains,” that are thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair. Each grain is a tiny crystal less than 100 nanometers in size. Bigger is not better in materials, Zhu says, as smalle
BIOTECH wizards have engineered electronic skin that can sense touch, in a major step towards next-generation robotics and prosthetic limbs. The lab-tested material responds to almost the same pressures as human skin and with the same speed,
The process makes use of peptides, or short protein segments, which vastly increase the replications of the virus once it enters a cell, causing the cell's self-destruction, Haaretz said, citing one of the researchers.
“Our goal is to make each home its own power station,” said study leader Daniel Nocera, Ph.D. “We’re working toward development of ‘personalized’ energy units that can be manufactured, distributed and installed inexpensively. There certainly are majo
Instead, those bacteria pass through several layers of cotton where an electrical field zaps them with twenty volts of electricity for several seconds. It's a technique that researchers have dubbed conductive "na
eparture from the kinds of things these records normally care about, i.e. battles and the deaths of famous people. In fact, the people keeping these records didn't even eat acorns, and other, more useful, crops aren't mentioned at all.
The approach taken by R-Jet involves having the air and hot gases in the combustor rotate with the compressor and turbine. To achieve this, the company uses what it calls an orbiting combustion nozzle (OCN), which turns with the compressor to inject
A HEAVY METAL MISADVENTURE - A Documentary Film by Writer - Director - Producer, Kelly Gallagher
Solar Roadways has entered GE's Ecomagination Challenge: a $200 million innovation experiment where businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators and students share their best ideas on how to build the next-generation power grid - and just might get funded.
Carter explained that the substance became known as "dry water" because it consists of 95 percent water and yet is a dry powder. Each powder particle contains a water droplet surrounded by modified silica, the stuff that makes up ordinary beach san
his new adhesive uses soy flour, an additive commonly used to make paper water resistant. The adhesive is as effective as petroleum based glues, but without the harmful formaldehyde fumes (a potential carcinogen) released from traditional plywood, pa
EACH OF THE SR-71 ENGINES PRODUCES THE POWER OF 45 LOCOMOTIVES! The muzzle velocity of a high powered, 30-06 rifle bullet is 2910 feet per second. The Blackbird can fly at 3226 feet per second. Of course that bullet starts to slow down as soon as
Given that the traditional four-stroke Otto-cycle engine piston engine only has a thermal efficiency of 25-30 percent, there is clearly still plenty of room for improvement. While most of the green automobile attention in recent years has been focuse
Dr Rubbia says a tonne of the silvery metal produces as much energy as 200 tonnes of uranium, or 3,500,000 tonnes of coal We could then stop arguing about wind mills, deepwater drilling, IPCC hockey sticks, or strategic reliance on the Kremlin. Hi
Oak Ridge researchers used supercomputers to simulate the fabrication of graphene using quantum molecular dynamics. In the process, scientists claim to have uncovered a new method of fabricating perfect edges and monolayers in graphene.
Basically Japan is promising true 3D television and images that do not require glasses and full court 3D experience (pretty close to holodeck like) by 2022. They will be using 60 to 100 million pixels of resolution to create the 3D effect. They demon
Jiaolong China's Jiaolong sub, shown here under construction, will search for energy sources and rare-earth metals in the deep sea.
Due to the high conservation of the pocket region across strains, PIE12-trimer worked against all major HIV strains worldwide, from Southeast Asia and South America to the United States and Africa.
